By default, all published pages will be publicly available. You can however restrict access to specific groups of people, so that they will have to provide a valid username and password before they can view your content. This could be as broad as restricting access to members of staff, or as specific as the members of a specific project.
Using the Web CMS?
- Restricting access in the Web CMS
To set up access control on a folder in your web account, use the Web Access Control tool. Remember to log in using your web account username and password, rather than your personal one. Once logged in, you will be able to select from a large selection of pre-defined groups to allow and deny access to - for example, 'Allow all third year undergraduates in the chemistry department'.
If you wish to restrict access to a group not already listed in the access control tool, you can do this by first setting up a custom group, using Custom access control groups.
Your group can also include people who are not members of the University, for example external contractors. To add them to a group their email address will first need to be registered, which you can do using the External Users tool.
